Hmmm...given that a low E is 41.2 Hz, the A is 55 Hz, the D is 73.42 Hz and that the published specs says it only goes down to 80 Hz, that wireless shouldn't reproduce bass very well at all. But, if it achieves what you need it to then that's all that matters
FWIW, the Line 6 G series extends below what you'd actually need at 10Hz. Additionally, being a digital system, there is no companding (compressing and expanding) of the signal as is with the Freeport and its analog UHF platform.
Prior to switching to my G30, I used a Shure U4S system that if bought new then was around $1400 I believe - so a good quality system that was used by a lot of pro touring acts (that or the U4D). I only switched from that unit because it operated in part of the frequency range that was reallocated and no longer available for wireless use. I was amazed at how much better the Line 6 sounded compared to the expensive Shure unit. Made me a believer. As always, YMMV.
